Cascade Corporation, founded in 1943, celebrates a momentous 75th anniversary this year. First opened as a small, five-man machine shop in Portland, Oregon, Cascade has since grown into a global operation with manufacturing plants, distribution centres and offices around the world.

"I'd like to sincerely thank everyone who has been a part of the Cascade story," says Cascade CEO Andy Anderson. "The collaboration and growth Cascade has seen over the years are due to the contributions of devoted and innovative people across the globe."

Currently, Cascade employs over 2,100 people in 21 countries around the world. This global reach gives Cascade teams the unique ability to coordinate operations across their facilities worldwide to meet customers' needs anywhere, anytime.

Anderson says quality teamwork is the foundation of Cascade's success, enabling employees to collaborate on this international stage while providing local service and support.

Cascade's extensive 75-year history has not only allowed for global growth, but also the ability to handle complex projects through the decades.

Cascade's global network recently rose to the challenge in order to help a customer who needed customised attachments for their specific application with automated guided vehicles (AGVs). Cascade US sales teams worked directly with the customer at their US site to determine specific needs and use cases. At the same time, Cascade Europe engineering teams worked with the European AGV manufacturer to ensure that attachment specifications integrated seamlessly with the vehicle, resulting in a product specifically designed for the customer's application while offering the easy plug-and-play capabilities featured on all Cascade AGV attachments. This hands-on investigation and planning, together with the expertise of Cascade's global engineering, customer support, and product management teams, allow Cascade to deliver the high-level performance the customer requires.

"Cascade succeeds because we go above and beyond," says Cascade president & COO Davide Roncari. "If our customer has a need, we'll find a way to meet it, even if it requires developing or inventing something completely new.

"One of Cascade's guiding principles is that of continuous improvement. We are excited to mark this special anniversary with a drive to grow our product offerings and continue supplying innovative material handling solutions that address growing industry trends like energy efficiency, damage reduction solutions, AGVs, telematics and more."

"I have a tremendous amount of appreciation for our employees' dedication and commitment to providing customers with the very best products and services," says Anderson. "As we look to the future of Cascade, I know that this commitment and passion will continue to serve us well for the next 75 years."
